With In The Loop, The Thick Of It and Alan Partridge, you can consistently rely on writer and director Armando Iannucci to exaggerate the bizarre nature of politics and sheer awkwardness of social situations for comic effect.

Now 1950’s Soviet Russia is the target in this wickedly funny first-look at his new film ‘The Death Of Stalin’, as a frenzied team of ministers jostle for control in the wake of great dictator Joseph Stalin’s death in 1953.

Starring Steve Buscemi, Jason Isaacs, Andrea Riseborough, Rupert Friend, Jeffrey Tambor and Michael Palin, the film will be gracing Toronto International Film Festival in September, ahead of its official UK release on 20th October.
